Babeu Stepping Down From Role With Romney Campaign

Arizona Sheriff Paul Babeu, facing explosive allegations of a relationship with a male Mexican immigrant, is stepping down from his role as Arizona co-chair of the Mitt Romney for President campaign.

Romney spokesperson Andrea Saul gave TPM the following statement:

Sheriff Babeu has stepped down from his volunteer position with the campaign so he can focus on the allegations against him. We support his decision.

11. Five! Five conservative scandals in a single week!


A conservative talk show host does a hit and run on a gay bar's parking lot, the Christian Broadcasting Network has had funds basically embezzled, a Televangelist accuses his estranged wife of stealing his porn, and the climate-change denying, libertarian Heartland Institute is shown to be a corporate-front organization and mostly the project of a single, anonymous donor, and might lose it's 501-c status.

Now this. Add to that Komen Foundation/Planned Parenthood backfire.

Somebody pass the popcorn. Let's watch conservatism's uncontrolled demolition.

22. Jose was a campaign staffer in charge of his website lol.

On Saturday, Babeu elaborated, saying the relationship with Jose "was of a personal nature" and that at some point the relationship ended. Jose was a volunteer who took control of the sheriff's campaign websites. Later, a paid staffer took over.
